Shoukat Ali's story

Shoukat is a 45-year-old married man. He is an active borrower of BRAC Pakistan. He lives in Lahore, Pakistan with his family. His wife is a very hardworking and responsible housewife. Since 1992, Shoukat has been running a clock shop, the only source of income for the family.

He purchases a variety of wall clocks from factories and sells them in the market. By doing so, he generates income to fulfill his family's needs. His net income is not enough to cope up with the daily and monthly needs of his family. He belongs to a poor family and has to pay for all of their expenses alone.

He has requested for a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan to purchase a large variety of wall clocks to sell in the main market. This will help him to increase his sales and net income.

He is very experienced in his business, and confident that his business will move in a positive direction as a result of this loan investment.

He is thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
